You can’t fight city hall

When the college-educated Reza moves from Tehran to north of Iran, he quickly clashes with the corrupt local authorities and his influential neighbour. Refusing to succumb to their demands for bribes and loyalty, he insists on doing the right thing – even when his pursuit of justice starts to impact his family. A disillusioned and at times almost kafkaesque study of how an authoritarian system silences dissidents, A MAN OF INTEGRITY is a harsh and defiant vision of modern-day Iran.
